Everquest was first released a little over 8 years ago. Video games in general have become a LOT more mainstream in that 8 years. Parents start plunking their kids down in front of computers and consoles at age 2 or 3 or younger now (I have a friend whose 20 month old regularly "plays" teletubbies games on daddy's PC).. "way back" in 1999, I think you'll find that the populace of potential gamers was a lot smaller and made up of people who had grown up on pong and the original Nintendo and were all at least age 18+.Now that video games are a more socially acceptable thing for kids to do, of course you're going to find a ton more kids playing games, and WoW is the current PC game king. I would be willing to bet that for the most part, it's the junior high and high school kids that are coming onto RP servers and griefing and filling barrens chat with Chuck Norris crap..
